Another corny song

At my house, if momma is happy, everyone is happy. If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. Since she left a hint hint in her last comment, here is is the song she has asked for. It's sung to the tune of "The Ballad of the Beverly Hillbillies" . This is the song I got to sing on the main stage with "The Muleskinners".

Listen to this story 'bout a little ear of corn
minding his own business early one September morn.
Then a fella passin' by, plucked that little ear,
and hollered to his buddies "Hey, Come on over here."

I've got an idea for ya and I think ya might like it.

That ol' boy told his friends "I've got a joyful thought."
"'Bout a big time carnival where corn is being bought."
His buddies all agreed his idea was quite feasible
and now it is the Millersport Sweetcorn Festival.

Sweetcorn it is. Hot & sweet and buttery.

Now it's time to say hello to the town of Millersport.
We all hope your stay with us will not be cut short.
You're all invited back this year to our locality,
to see how much sweetcorn you can put in your belly.

The corn sure is good this year. Take a dozen home with ya. Ya'll come back now ya hear?

Jewel, Actually the festival organizers liked it too. They recorded it to play for their advertizing agency. I was told that if the agency used it in a commercial, I would recieve royalites. I think the ad agency was jealous because they didn't come up with it. It never made the airways.
